    Cooper Street Art Gallery is Installed
    Downtown Statesville, NC – On Friday morning, the art wall, dubbed Cooper Street Art Gallery, had new art installed in Downtown Statesville.
    Downtown Statesville Development Corporation’s Design Committee first installed this gallery in October of 2018 in an effort to provide more public art in downtown. The images are changed every year, and are chosen from public submissions. After a call for art submissions earlier in the Summer, the committee received many impressive pieces to choose from. The art was printed on mesh banner material and now hangs on the existing support structure that covers the wall on the side of Nu-Way Shoes. The images that have been installed for this second round include:
